Imagine an alternate universe where you could drink a latte and work on your laptop, or lounge with a date on a sofa, or miserably fail at trivia night with your friends, or grab a seat at the bar for a beer and a cheese plate - all in the same place. We’re happy to tell you that such a place already exists, and it’s called The Dane. This all-day cafe has a surprisingly extensive lineup of beers hailing from everywhere between Washington and New York - plus great espresso, snacks, and events. Consider it your new weeknight hangout spot.
